Bunker77 is the wild true story of a young American rebel seeking freedom, love, and authenticity in a chaotic world. The film chronicles Clark Gable's step son and heir to a sugar fortune, Bunker Spreckels. A controversial surf star from the late 60s into the 70s who pushed the limits of riding very short boards in the most critical waves of Hawaii, mentored skateboard legend Tony Alva to his world championship, and collaborated with Kenneth Anger right before his dynamic life was cut short at 27 in 1977.


BIOGRAPHY

Takuji Masuda (Yokohama, 1971) studied at St. Michael University School (British Columbia, Canada) and at Pepperdine University (Malibu, USA). It was there that he immersed himself in the beach culture and became a professional surfer. Takuji spent two decades critically reviewing Bunker Spreckels' life, which eventually came out as a book published by Taschen, Bunker Spreckels, Surfing's Divine Prince of Decadence in 2007, and now brings us the first feature film about Spreckels, Bunker77. Masuda is currently based in Switzerland, manages his own production company (Endangered Spirit GMBH) and is pursuing a MFA degree in Production at Pepperdine University.
